I have been permanently injured following an operation that went wrong and my partner has had to look after me — can I claim compensation for the time spent caring for me?

Providing you can prove negligence, you will be able to include this element of care in your medical negligence claim. This may be personal care like helping you to wash and dress or go to the toilet, or domestic care such as cooking or cleaning that in the past would have been done by you.

You should keep a record of the time your partner spent caring for you and the nature of the tasks involved, as this will make it easier for a care claim to be calculated as part of your medical negligence claim.
